IMMUNE:  Journey into the Mysterious System That Keeps You Alive

by Philipp Dettmer

Chapter 43 – pages 286 -288 say:
“To understand the role of stress and the immune system, we have to look back millions of years, to a simpler but much more cruel time in our developmental history. In order to survive, your ancestors had to deal with the evolutionary pressures the environment subjected them to. In the wild, stress is usually connected with existential danger, like a rival that crosses into your territory or a predator that wants to make you its meal.
“…  So one of the adaptations to stress was to accelerate certain immune mechanisms while slowing down others.
“… Psychological stress has actual and immediate physical consequences for the immune system, many of them not helpful. The thing about stress is that it is similar to your immune response in one extremely important aspect: When it works as it is intended to, stress is a great mechanism that helps solve an immediate problem and then shuts itself off afterwards. But the nature of the stressors we encounter in the modern world is different than the ones we evolved with. In the past the lion either got you or you escaped — either way, your stress stopped.
“In general, chronic stress seems to disrupt the ability of the body to shut down inflammation and causes chronic inflammation. And as we discussed before, chronic inflammation has been linked to a higher risk for numerous diseases, from cancer to diabetes, heart and autoimmune diseases, and also a general frailty and higher chance of death…..”

Mayo Clinic  says:

“Depression is a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest. Also called major depressive disorder or clinical depression, it affects how you feel, think and behave and can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems. You may have trouble doing normal day-to-day activities, and sometimes you may feel as if life isn’t worth living. More than just a bout of the blues, depression isn’t a weakness and you can’t simply “snap out” of it….”

Merriam-Webster dictionary says:

– a state of feeling sad: low spirits : melancholy

specifically: a mood disorder that is marked by varying degrees of sadness, despair, and loneliness and that is typically accompanied by inactivity, guilt, loss of concentration, social withdrawal, sleep disturbances, and sometimes suicidal tendencies.

A PLACE OF HER OWN™ (founded by renowned artist / curator / educator Cynthia Tom)  is a culturally informed, art-based healing and transformation 6-month program consisting of weekly workshops, culminating in a professional art exhibition.
A PLACE OF HER OWN™ (PLACE) is an art-based healing organization dedicated to sparking and sustaining the well-being and activism of women


In November 2017 my dear friend Sue said to me: “Teresa, I thought of you when I saw the word ‘transformation’ on Cynthia Tom’s 2018 class brochure A Place of Her Own™”


The 6-month program began in January 2018. During Week 2, while listening to classmates talk about their dreams to let go of ancestral traumas … my chronic sore throat symptoms went away.


One day in April, 2018  dear Sasa Southard helped me craft my “artist statement” when we were eating le petit déjeuner  then déjeuner at Coquelicot in Montmartre, Paris.


In my May 7, 2018 blog post:

“Over six months of Exploring and Naming Hungry Ghosts (examine and challenge beliefs that hold me back and the exploration of my family patterns not just those of my parents’ but also of my ancestors’ traumas linked to world history of slavery, colonization, forced migration, oppression), Releasing Hungry Ghosts, Claiming MY PLACE, and Proclaiming MY PLACE … I, Teresa Jade LeYung, give a thousand thanks to creator and lead teacher of A PLACE OF HER OWN ™ Cynthia Tom, assistant teachers Maggie Yee and Natalie Sacramento, my dear classmates (Julie Andersen, Frances Cachapero, Norma Carrera, Kristi Chan, Angie Dumagsa, Elizabeth Esqueda, Ashleigh Heinichen, Tomo Hirai, Ahran Lee, Grace Hwang Lynch, Teresa Jade LeYung-Ryan, Patricia Zamora), guest artist-speakers Cris Matos, Angela Bau, Reiko Fujii,  Irene Wibawa, and Brian Garvey (the gent who helps us and our work get to classroom ‘on time’ every Thursday),  Asian American Women Artists Association,  Pacific Asian American Women Bay Area Coalition, and all the dear hearts who encouraged me to enroll in this residency program six months ago.”

Dear Readers of

I wish you all wellness and joy.

This post is to acknowledge the dear folks who have encouraged and inspired me as I made my debut as a Found-Object Artist.  Whether or not they were there in person, I humbly thank everyone as I go forward with a new perspective!

My 2018 artist statement for A PLACE OF HER OWN Exhibition which ran May 12 through June 24, 2018 at J-SEI in Emeryville, California.

Teresa Jade LeYung

Four smoothened wood boxes represent my dream home ? a place where I can balance the four areas of my life.  The green, blue, pink, gold (from paintings and mixed media art created by Cynthia Tom, Cris Matos, Chandra Garsson, Maria K.W. Leung) represent my affinity with Nature.

I dream of four desks so that I would not have to constantly clear off table space to make room for one project while having to put away my other projects.

All that I do and want to do are equally precious to me.  Just as there are four points on a compass, my four desks will allow me to go forward with my work with clarity.

And, when I say work, I am talking about what makes me want to get up each morning with a smile on my face and a spring in my walk.  I think beauty. I become beauty.

I transform “I was” to “I AM”

I was a child witness to family violence.

I was a frightened immigrant.

I was an adult receiver of violence.

I AM Teresa Jade LeYung who speaks openly through my writing and advocacy, my immigrant experience, and my knowing beauty.  As an author, a story consultant, and a found-object artist and student of A PLACE OF HER OWN™, I empower women to transform their own stories.  I think beauty. I AM beauty. Please visit me at

Wishing you total wellness and happiness!

These past weeks, while my nervous system is learning  from Neuro Integration System (N.I.S.) treatments and Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) treatments from Dr. Jae Reed, D.C. and is continuing to learn from Chi Nei Tsang treatments from Stephanie Wilger, NC … watching / listening to these two British TV series written by Bob Larbey have given me much joy.

While on  looking up writing credits for British TV series DOUBLE FIRST  1988 (Michael Williams as N.V. Standish) . . . a trailer of the movie EDUCATING RITA appeared.

Esmonde & Bob Larbey wrote DOUBLE FIRST


 * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Willy Russell wrote the stage play and screenplay  EDUCATING RITA

(the movie – starring Michael Caine as Dr. Frank Bryant and Julie Walters as Rita/Susan; Michael Williams as Brian).

The name “Rita” carries precious symbolism for me and my sister.

“Educating Rita” – what better inspiration for me as I am being educated on what clear communication is between Brain and Body.  Neuro Integration System (N.I.S.) treatments and Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) and Chi Nei Tsang treatments remove obstacles and let my Body repair itself the best way possible -  naturally.

I am grateful to these healers and to the folks who led me to them:


Stephanie Wilger, NC for Chi Nei Tsang, Breast Wellness, Nutrition


Dr. Jae Reed D.C. for Neuro Integration System (N.I.S.) and Neuro Emotional Technique (NET)
